EINS Workshop on Understanding the inter-play between sustainability, resilience, and robustness in networks (USRR)

Workshop homepage

Workshop on April 3 2014 Co-located with DRCN 2014.

Introduction & Context

The Network of Excellence in Internet Science (EINS, www.internet-science.eu) is an EU FP7-funded research project, aiming to strengthen scientific and technological excellence by developing an integrated and interdisciplinary scientific understanding of Internet networks and their co-evolution with society. Its main objective is to enable an open and productive dialogue between all disciplines which study Internet systems from any technological or humanistic perspective, and which in turn are being transformed by continuous advances in Internet functionality.
